Hunte previously served as the CFO of Trenwick Group Inc. (Trenwick’s predecessor company) for seventeen years until 2000.

When Coleman arrived, Alan became the Group’s Chief Accounting Officer and anticipated having the opportunity to return to the Chief Financial Officer’s role upon Coleman’s retirement or departure. The directors and I are fully confident in Alan’s abilities to resume responsibility for the oversight and management of the Group’s financial affairs.”
